employment lawyer for schools & academies






Tunbridge Wells

expert employment law advice for schools & academies

We provide specialist employment law services to schools and academies thoughout the South East Of England and therefore understand the pressures schools face & tailor our employment law services specifically to suit.

Good employment relationships are essential to the success of any organisation, but never more so than in a school or academy, where the morale of the teaching and support staff is an integral part of the environment. Negotiating the minefield of employment legislation however can be daunting.

We provide a full range of employment law services, from the drafting of policies and contracts to termination of employment and everything in between. From the outset we will get to know the key people at your school, ensuring that the advice you receive from us enables you to make decisions without having to defend employment tribunal claims. As we deal with employment law, and only employment law, our knowledge is second to none, providing you with reassurance and protection. We can help to clarify the complexities of new employment legislation and specifically how it affects your staff. This combination of specialist employment knowledge, personal  service and cost effective pricing is what we believe marks us out from other legal firms and HR service providers.

Baileyfields provide an outstanding level of service to their clients. They are attentive, precise and effective.
